Came here with my boyfriend and another couple. Started out butting heads with the front desk with the fact that they had to up charge us $25 a person per night to fit 4 people in what was seen as a 2 person bedroom. (The room had 2 queen beds, we all fit fine) This place is nice with the...

We stayed at rainbow bend for our house hunting trip to Marathon . The restaurant is awesome for breakfast and dinner, the accommodations are not the Ritz Carlton but very clean and reminds me of a 50s 60s motor inn.The staff was very nice and accommodating to our needs.One thing to pass on is the restaurant and bar is wine...

Our first time in the Florida Keys and this was a perfect getaway. We loved the boats and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We grilled out on the beach with other guests. Our room was very clean and plenty big - the hot tub was relaxing at the end of the day.

Not too fancy as far as rooms go but comfy and clean. We loved the boat rental. The restaurant is great. On our last day it was stormy and we got a great lightning show from the large windows of the restaurant. The little beach was so relaxing to just sit with my new hubby and have some wine at...

Marathon is a relaxed secluded Key unlike the congestion of Key West. Resort is a quaint older resort located on the Atlantic side. Our suite was very nice and well kept. The boat/fishing attendants (Tony and Eric) were extremely helpful.

I searched several hotels in the area not having any idea what to expect. I'm glad I chose this hotel. My husband enjoyed the boats while I enjoyed the pool and the beach. The hotel isn't a 5 star luxury hotel, it's more of a mom and pop kind of hotel and thats just what I was looking for. The...

My wife and I stayed at the Rainbow Bend in late September 2016. Great experience and the view just beautiful. The restaurant was excellant, the food awesome.The staff was really accommodating. The only improvement that I would recommend would be, the furniture needed updated ( mattress ). Upon arrival we originally booked a lower level room, however the manager had...

It's a self contained little beach paradise. Walk out in the morning with the sun on your face, sand in your toes. Palm trees and tropical plants that seem unreal. The room we had, the Octagon, was right on the beach. Guest get a complimentary breakfast each morning and it's a real breakfast, not the stuff you get at most...

Maybe not a 5 star masterpiece but for us who love to go out fishing every morning it met and exceeded all expectations. I recommend it to anyone who wants their little piece of paradise at a smaller resort. The Boston Whaler boats were perfect for our daily adventures and the staff (Eric was the man!) couldn't have been any...
